Research shows that educative curricula not only support students’ learning, but teachers’ learning as well. But what makes an educative curriculum? It’s not scripted; it’s material that goes beyond instruction to aid in developing a teacher’s own content and pedagogical knowledge. Educative curriculum benefits educators both in terms of how teachers can use their prep time and in honing their craft.
In this roundtable webinar, our educator panelists will discuss the importance and impact of an educative curriculum on their practice and the experience of teaching by using an educative curriculum.
